As each group has presented the four early river civilizations, we start to see key characteristics emerge that they have in common. Today, we will review and discuss what these are and the role that their values and beliefs played in the development of their human-created systems they developed. We also see the role that environment played in the development of their systems as they adapted to and modified their environment as their civilization grew.

Quiz Time (don't worry... its formative --and relatively easy and short!)
Go through "The Big History Project" website. Explore the videos and information presented in Unit 7: Agriculture and Civilization. We will move beyond this topic when our class meets next time into World Religions. Be sure you have a solid foundation and understanding about why early civilizations began to settle where they did, what they had in common and how their ideas about the world and beliefs influenced the way they organized society. There is no written requirement for homework but taking notes may be helpful. When you come to class next time, you will be expected to write for 20 minutes answering/responding to some of today's group questions about how early civilizations organized and developed systems based on their values and beliefs. You will be allowed to use your notes for reference during your 20-minute writing practice. You will be formatively assessed for your writing sample using the Explanatory Rubric (development and analysis strands only).
